When the cold winds blow this March in northwest Ohio, residents in Archbold are counting their savings in energy costs. For the past month, the new wind turbine at Archbold high school has been churning in the breeze, creating over 116,000 killowatts of power. It’s estimated this wind turbine will generate enough energy savings each year to supply power to both the elementary and high school buildings at Archbold.
The Archbold School board of education met this week, and talked about a possible construction project this summer, to resurface the front drive at the high school, as well as the elementary school parking lot.
A contract for preventative maintenance was signed for the next year, at a cost of nearly $23,700; which will assure the workings of mechanical equipment, along with heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems.
The Archbold board accepted the retirement-resignation of several teachers, including Jane Stevens with 33 years, Kelly Ducey with 35 years, and Carla Hoverman with 21 years. Lisa Roth also submitted her resignation after teaching 12 years in the district.
And Archbold is taking applications for their technology coordinator position until April 12th. Two internal candidates have filed their intentions.
